CAPE TOWN Gay Beaches

Cape Town combines all the benefits of city living with the possibility of laying on a gay beach to sunbathe during the day or to enjoy the animation of the seafront in the evening or at night.

Pool Parties

Although Cape Town boats some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, most guys hang out by the pools on the beachfront – because the sea water is cold – Its the Atlantic!

The west side of the Cape is also known as Cape Town’s Riviera, which begins at the V and A Waterfront on the north shore and ends at Hout Bay. Inbetween is one of the most breathtaking scenic drives you are likely to encounter anywhere.

The beaches endless hours of shunshine, compared to European Beaches and the sunsets are truly spectacular with the sun disappearing over the horizon right before your eyes! No high rises her to spoil your view!

If you are staying in the city, allow at least one day to make the drive south of the city along the coast.

  • Getting to the gay beaches in Cape Town

    Clifton’s beaches are less than five km from the Cape Town city centre. Parking can be quite scarce during summer months (November to April), so taxis are often the best option from the CBD.

  • What we love!

    Camps Bay, which is just down the road from Clifton, boasts several world-class restaurants, bars and night clubs. Check out Paranga restaurant for a day-time lunch treat!

  • Stay by the beach!

    Our ideal vacation in Cape Town is to spend the week days relaxing in Camps Bay and then head to the city centre for the weekend!

Camps Bay

Camps Bay

Perfect for Sundowners

The Platinum Mile of Camps Bay is a long, sandy beach with palm trees and a stunning promenade lined with trendy restaurants, cafes and cocktail bars. This is where the bold and the beautify of Cape Town mingle with visitors to the city against one of the most beautiful backdrops of Lion’s Head and the 12 Apostles. Camps Bay is very popular for sundowners and in hot weather it’s a beach paradise!

Camps bay has some of the finest beachfront hotels in all of Cape Town.

Sandy Bay

The defacto gay nude beach in Cape Town.

Sandy Bay is a nude beach frequented by many gays and lesbians, and one of the prettiest beaches in the area.Follow the signs (and the crowds) down to the walking path entrance,
which you will recognize by the soft drink vendors parked there. The walk to the beach is about fifteen minutes, so bring along anything you might need. The gay section is at the far end. On weekends, try to arrive by 9:30 or 10:00am, or you may have to walk another ten minutes from the nearest parking space. The bushes at the back offer more than just a quiet stroll! The beach is one of the most beautiful on the Cape. Tucked beneath the steep cliffs it is a mixture of soft white sand and large boulders called Sunset Rocks.

Clifton Third Gay Beach

Clifton Thrid beach

The busiest gay beach and day meeting point in Cape Town.

Clifton Thrid beach is where the local gay boys hang out (The third beach of the five numbered beaches at Clifton, known as Clifton 3). Glancing around the absolutely gorgeous powdery white, boulder-dotted of Clifton Third surrounded by multi-million rand bungalows creeping up a sheer mountain, it’s easy to forget that the riches on display here — mansions that would put Malibu to shame, not to mention oiled-up bodies that barely fit in their speedos — are an anomaly and not the norm. (Well, except for the muscles; Cape Town is rife in hot men!)
